Dell :: Bluray Drive In Sxps 1640

Apr 10, 2009

I am probably getting the sxps 1640 and I was wondering would a bluray drive be worth it? I do have a Sony 40v4100 lcd tv. Can this drive output 24p through the hdmi port? And why isnt it a bluray burner like the xps m1530 line? How hard would it be to swap in a bluray drive, do you have to pull the whole computer apart to do so? Should I just spend the money on an external bluray player for my tv?

Dell :: Bluray Drive + Transformer Revenge Of The Fallen Audio Issues

Feb 16, 2010

This is for anyone with a 1640/45 possibly same thing on the 47 since they're all virtually identical save processor.

If you have the above plus a bluray drive (specifically the Bluray 4x RE) and Transformers 2 on bluray.

Do you notice that when playing the game there is a lot of crazy distortion sounds and popping noises? Never truly the same or in the same place.

I had this problem with my 1640 and my new 1645.

1640 was P8800, Ati 3670 and similar features as listed in my new configuration.

Bios updates don't seem to have resolved this issue, neither has different laptops. Only thing left is to check if this is specific to my copy of transformers.

I've not really checked to see if this is replicated via other titles but thats next on my list of things to figure out if this thread doesn't garner any useful results.

Acer :: Aspire 7540 With Non-Working BluRay Drive

Apr 23, 2010

I have had this laptop for just about a week and a half, and although last week it played "The Dark Knight" BluRay disc, it will not play any bluray at this point in time.

The Acer Arcade Deluxe program is apparently supposed to do that function, but it will not. I have updated the software for AAD a couple of times. I have tried reinstalling it, I have tried checking the driver for the multi-drive. All to no avail!

Right now the Device Manager calls the optical drive a CD-Rom. I do not know if it was a Windowes update that screwed things up, or what, but what is the point of buying a laptop with a blu-ray drive, when 10 days later it won't play a blu-ray disc?

Acer :: Could Timeline AS3810T-6775 Support External Bluray Drive

Aug 3, 2009

I've been looking at the new timeline series notebooks for a while and got really excited when newegg put up this model for $799! Anyways, I plan on getting an external drive and was just wondering if the SU9400 with Intel GMA 4500MHD could support playing a bluray disk on an external drive? From what I'm gathering through the numerous posts about these models, it appears that the SU9400 should playback 1080P off various websites but I couldn't find any info about a bluray player.

If so any suggestions on a compact inexpensive external bluray drive?

Is it possible to swap out SSD with standard 2.5" hard drive in the Vaio Z if it's configured with the optical drive + 128gb SSD?

I'm thinking of putting in a 640gb or 500gb. I know the Japan models can do this but they also get 1080p which we don't have as a CTO option

How hard is a HD swap on a Macbook PRO? Part of my whole conversion of the MBPRO to a "desktop" includes a display, keyboard, mouse...and I'd like a 7200 RPM drive....anyone done this?

Apple :: Hard Drive Swap - PowerBook G4 1.5GHz 12" To 17"

Dec 3, 2009

I have a PowerBook G4 1.5GHz 12" DVI Titanium which is now from what I can tell has a busted board. I have some sensitive material on my hard drive and I would prefer not to take it to a repair store for privacy. I would also like to go a little bigger. So the only thing I could come up with is to purchase a 17 or 15" G4 Powerbook Titanium and swap the hard drive. My question to all of you is if the 12" and the others of the same class are using the same hardrive. Will I many any complications in trying, is it even cross compatible. Am I going through too much trouble entirely? does anyone have any better suggestions? if I have a shop swap it for me can they even access the contents of my hard drive with out the password.

Dell :: XPS 16 (Bluray And Memory)...

Apr 10, 2010

I have been hearing that the read/playback performance of the bluray drive on this laptop is terrible. Some say that it stutters all the way through an entire movie and it is very loud. Is this true? My second question is about the $375 charge for upgrading from 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM. Is it overpriced? Also, how easy is it to upgrade the RAM on the XPS 16?

Dell :: Get An XPS16 With An I7 AND BluRay?

It looks like you can build an XPS16 in any of ten million ways, but this is one combination I haven't found.

Does it exist?

And to those with experience with the XPS16 and the XPS13, is the added size and weight of the 16 noticeable?

Dell :: UJ-225b Bluray In M1710

Apr 11, 2008

Was looking at Panasonic UJ-225B as a blu-ray writer drive for an upgrade of the DVD writer in my xps m1710. It is a slot loading drive and runs at x2 BD-R writing speeds.

Ridiculously expensive at the moment here in the UK (£325+VAT), so I have to be sure that it would fit/work OK in the Dell notebook before I shell out for it.

Has anyone got this drive fitted in the xps m1710?

Dell :: XPS16 SLot-load Bluray CA10N

Jun 26, 2009

Does anyone have any information or updated drivers for this drive. The only Blueray drive listed on Dells driver page is the BC-5600S.

The laptop is only 2 months old. Is this a newer drive or is the 5600 the replacement.

I am not happy with the performance of the drive so far, blueray movies sometimes stop while it searches the disk, and I am yet to successfully burn a Dual-layer disk (verbatim).
